DP Poll: Who Was Our Best President?

My choices to consider:

George Washington: "Observe good faith and justice towards all Nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. "

Thomas Jefferson: "When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

James Madison: "Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.......No nation can preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."

Calvin Coolidge: "Perhaps one of the most important accomplishments of my administration has been minding my own business."

Tie: Dick Cheney & HW Bush

Two of our "greatest" were VPs.

Cheney did an excellent job running the country as a puppet master.

HW Bush did a fantastic job hanging all the blame for his illegal foreign policy actions on Reagan.

Thomas Jefferson!

I have a question though for my fellow DP's.

If men can not be trusted to rule themselves how can they be trusted to rule others?

David Atchison

He slept through most of his 1 day presidency.

Can't think of one

during my lifetime, except Ron Paul, even though that doesn't count. Can't say Eisenhower because although he warned us to watch out for the MIC, he also gave us Nixon. What lasting good other presidents really did before I was born, who knows?

John Tyler was interesting,

John Tyler was interesting, after being President, He sided with the Confederate government, and won election to the Confederate House of Representatives shortly before his death. He died in Confederate Virginia in 1862.

Franklin Pierce the only President from New Hampshire, had Sympathy for the Southern cause, and wrote to Jefferson Davis.
